Hey UG,

I have narrowed my new amp choices down to two. Realizing I won't need a half stack I'm going between a Peavey Classic 30/112 tweed, or a Marshall Haze40 tube combo amps. This however is not the point of the thread.

I want to get some opinion on Vox Amps, what are prices, are there tube combos and a recomendation for a budget around 1000 USD


I play on a Gibson Les Paul 2008 Standard, Tradition G12 Standard (decent strat knock off). I play classic rock, hard rock (like GNR) and some metal (mostly metallica), but I play a lot of blues (SRV) so need good cleans as well as good OD.

Vox AC30's + Gibsons = crunch tones of your dreams with great cleans.

The mellowness of a LP with a Bright Vox will always give you good tone, though it might not do Metallica/GnR level gain without a boost


Well what would I use to get a good level of gain, I was thinking of an Ibanez Tube King but ^ guy said an OCD, which I have never heard off but read some reviews?

Any boost pedal really, maybe a Badmonkey/TS-808 or 9 or 10.
You can even use the boost off an EQ pedal really...

The AC15/30 can do great Guns tones with a boost and can get to a metallica type crunch tone but the lead gets either too bright or too muddy. You can get great blues/rock and clean tones too. For the boost i would get a radial tonbone Hot British, can really tweak in a good tone.
